The Art of Accompaniment  - Cluster Workshop—Sat 21st October
Pope Francis is asking everyone in the Church to ‘make present the fragrance of  Christ’s presence… removing our sandals before the sacred ground of the other’ (Joy of the Gospel, 169). With these words, the Holy Father is calling us to put the art of accompaniment at the heart of our parish life. Bill Huebsch, an influential American lay theologian, a warm, entertaining speaker, will share his ideas from his new book ‘The Art of Accompaniment’. We will talk about walking with others through the ups and down of life, including perhaps family who have stopped joining us on Sundays and friends who struggle with aspects of church teaching. Not easy...hence the workshop! Offered to the whole cluster, it will take place in St FX parish on Sat 21st October, starting after 10am Mass. [Fr John writes….I cannot recommend this event too highly….I discovered Bill Huebsch’s writings on Church and Sacraments particularly refreshing and stimulating when I was in seminary and look forward to meeting the man himself]
